Lawrence 'knew she'd be famous'

Jennifer Lawrence won the Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook

Jennifer Lawrence says growing up in Kentucky she always knew she would be famous.

The Best Actress Oscar-winner for Silver Linings Playbook tells the September issue of Vogue magazine that she used to "lie in bed and wonder" about what would make her well-known.

She says: "It wasn't a vision. But as it's kind of happening, you have this buried understanding - of course."

The 22-year-old also confesses her childhood was "unhappy" because she was "anxious". Her parents even sent her to a therapist.

It was when she got cast in 2007 in the TV series The Bill Engvall Show that her mother realised she no longer needed counselling because when she was acting it made her happy.

Vogue's September issue goes on sale on August 20.

Don't be afraid to ask for more money than you are initially offered. A show of courage will pave the way for a good working relationship with your boss. You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
